Matthews: The Electronic Frontier Foundation or EFF is suing claiming the mass surveillance of Americans is unconstitutional. They asked Judge Jeffrey White to prevent them from destroying the evidence of that collection. Lawyers for the government speaking by phone in Washington, D.C. argued the NSA material needs to be deleted because there's simply too much of it. And keeping it could imperil the program and damage national security. Today Judge Jeffrey White sided with the government saying he didn't have enough information to overrule the national security concerns. Cohn: The judge said he didn't have enough information to make a decision. This was an emergency motion. We brought it yesterday. Matthews: The lead lawyer for EFF said both sides will file briefs and get a hearing later this summer. Cohn: So yes, he did rule for the government here, but in a very short term way.
